Humans tend to a baseline mood. For some, maybe, this baseline is at an acceptable height, I however believe that for most, this baseline is feeling miserable. If you have no clue what I am talking about right now, you are one of the lucky ones…
Weird people. We all know some. People that do not like to look ordinary. There are some who have artistic reasons. Then there are those who just do not care about their appearance. And these are the ones I want to ramble about.
In the moments when I’m truly alone and thinking, I wonder about intelligence. About what it is to be intelligent. Recently, I have found an interesting view on the matter. How is Experience different from intelligence? Is intelligence ability to process experience?
Think different. A simple, yet memorable slogan, of one of the biggest companies in the world. Apple is now more like a lifestyle, than a producer. In what way, is anyone thinking different if they have anything to do with them?

Have you ever felt satisfied? It is common to think about satisfaction as a goal. What sort of a goal is it, though. A goal must be measurable, otherwise it is but a chimera. Nobody should ever settle with satisfaction.
Exactness. Close to impossible for a human, but ridiculously easy for a machine. I would say it is a virtue and I praise anyone who strives for it. Being exact, mathematically exact, makes communication, contrary to popular belief, a lot easier.

What is the value of a person? Some say that every person is different, that every person is invaluable, that even asking these questions is wrong. But lets open our minds and try to think about the unthinkable. Lets face the reality.
